JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: AMERICA IS NOW ASKING CANADIAN TROOPS TO STAY IN AFGHANISTAN BEYOND THEIR AGREED DEPARTURE IN 2011   Leave a comment

POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN IN TORONTO’S GLOBE AND MAIL

The sick influence of even our limited involvement with Afghanistan is apparent in the very words of some of these remarks.

“Our boys”!

Canadians never traditionally spoke this way. It is the speech of belly-over-belt American politicians from Mississippi.

“The women of Afghanistan”!

As though the writer had any idea at all, and besides, “the women” were George Bush’s ace propaganda ploy.

America did not go there to help women. It went there to kill, and it has killed a great many people.

We have squandered many lives and billions of dollars trying to make the Pentagon smile at us.

That’s enough.

Staying longer would be proof that American insanity is catching.
